The Stall Turn

The stall turn is a maneuver usually associated with light, propeller-driven aircraft, but it can also be performed with jet simulations. This is a good last maneuver after a series of vertical moves. The most difficult part of this trick is entering the maneuver flying perfectly vertically. If your simulation program offers views out the side of the cockpit, you can use them to position yourself so you are flying straight up.
